Interface Development and Integration of the ATC-610J Personal Flight Trainer with the XTAR Graphics Boards
UCF is conducting research to use computer generated graphics to enhance realism in flight simulation by providing a pictorial representation of a terrain data base as viewed by the pilot. JDViewII, from XTAR Electronics, is a low cost graphics system used with the IBM or IBM compatible personal computer to generate such visuals. The objective of this research is to provide a means of interfacing 3DViewII with an ATC-610J flight simulator. The ATC-610J provides position and attitude data to 3DViewII where the data is used to update the view seen from the cockpit as displayed on the graphics terminal. A second objective is to provide improved realism by reducing the effects of noise on the ATC-610J output signals using digital and analog filtering techniques. A simple RC low-pass analog filter is used with two types of digital filters. The digital filters are discussed relative to their implementations, benefits and limitations. Finally, conclusions are drawn justifying the particular digital filter chosen, and suggestions are made for further research and improvement of the system.
